Traffic is slow on the way back from Sac. Sister is so bored, she keeps finding ways to entertain herself, like poking me in the ribs. This is the only way I could keep her from torturing me. #car #games #nostalgia

The Incas, the Aztecs, the Mayans, all dark-skinned Indian people, had a highly developed culture here in America, in what is now Mexico and northern South America. These people had mastered agriculture at the time when European white people were still living in mud huts and eating weeds. But white children, or black children, or grown-ups here today in America don’t get to read this in the average books they are exposed to.

good non gendered words to say instead of dude to someone who doesnt want to be called a dude

  • buddy
  • bud
  • pal
  • neighbor
  • *australian voice* mate
  • *cowboy voice* partner

don’t forget

  • *strong Russian accent like Siberian winter* COMRADE

I have a cohortmate who would come into the office and say, in this adorable piping voice, “hello, friends!” And if it was just one person in the office, she’d say “hello, friend!” Also applied to goodbyes, too. It was infectious.

BRAINS OVER BRAWN.

This drives me mad. I used to work in a bookstore, and was talking to my coworker and he just yelled out “stop flirting with me!” at this ridiculous volume and it was humiliating because 
1. I wasn’t
2. I got in trouble for acting unprofessional 
3. He embarrassed me in front of a line of people
4. And he only stopped insisting that I was flirting when my boyfriend (who is now my husband) said, “dude, trust me, she’s not flirting with you” to him

That asshole respected my BOYFRIEND saying I wasn’t flirting more than he respected me saying it and I was the one who was talking! The whole scene got me in trouble at work. And the most ridiculous part is we were talking about a fucking book. In a bookstore.

One time, my ex boyfriend had a crush on some girl, and said that he thought he might have “a chance” with her.

When I asked him what made him think that, he said “Well, she talks to me.”

And this is why it is so difficult to be a girl and be friends with men who are attracted to women.

Can we also add that this is why a lot of women do the resting bitch face when out in public. Cause dudes swear a glance or a smile is flirting.

So yesterday something that perfectly illustrates this happened. I work at a fast food place and this guy comes in at 7am on a Sunday, still probably drunk from the night before, and when I smiled and said goodmorning he said “Did you just say that because you’re being paid to say that?” 

I repressed my urge to sarcastically answer, and said “Nope, I just enjoy saying hi to everyone!” To which he responded, “Oh, so you weren’t flirting with me then.”

Dude, I’m not flirting with your gross 7am-on-a-Sunday-ass, trust me.

My defense mechanism when I’m uncomfortable at work is to smile, so I did that and said “Is there anything I can get you this morning?” to which he responded,

"There, you just smiled! What does that mean?"

At this point I was fed up, so I said, 

"I smile at everyone sir, its just what I do. What can I get you, coffee, a bagel?"

And he said “I’m gonna be watching to see if you smile at everyone. I don’t like it when girls lie to me” and then ordered a coffee and a muffin like he hadn’t just said something at 11 on the “Is this guy a serial rapist” scale (where 0 is ‘no’ and 10 is ‘Yes, run away as fast as you can right now.”).

Then he sat there for another hour and a half, staring at me from his table. When he got up and left he came back to the counter, and said “You do smile at everyone. That’s fucked up.” and walked out.

I can’t even be innocuously polite and pleasant to people at my job (where customer service is the number one thing we are supposed to be focusing on) for fear of this shit happening. What happens if he had decided to wait until my shift was over? 

New Rule: If she’s at work, SHE’S NOT FLIRTING WITH YOU.

I’ve gotten this a lot. Earth to guys: Being nice and a smile doesn’t mean I’m flirting with you. It means I’m just being a nice human being.

When I tell people this I’ve gotten the “I can’t tell if you’re flirting with me, because girls didn’t flirt with me in high school/college, so now I’m just going to default to assuming you’re flirting with me and resent the crap out of you if you prove that not to be the case which, P.S., I will constantly test to see if you’ve changed your mind about” from straight white nerdy dudes in particular as a defensive argument.

And it’s like, man, fuck off. You know how to tell if a woman is flirting with you? It’s super easy, here, I’ll tell you:

Step 1: Ask her.

Step 2: Believe her answer.
